One of the most affordable modern Bond cars is the 1996 BMW Z3. I recently wrote about the unveiling of the latest Z4 concept which premiered a couple of weeks ago during the Pebble Beach festivities, but the concept really got started 22 years ago...

We've heard a lot about the solar eclipse coming into view on Monday, August 21. The first question that comes to my mind is, what is the best car to use for eclipse viewing? I can think of a car that would be perfect for...

After my recent trip to London, which included a visit to the Bond In Motion exhibit, I've been thinking a lot about the cars featured in various James Bond films. You would be surprised how many of the cars you could buy, even if your...

This is one of the biggest weeks of the year for car enthusiasts - it's the week of the Pebble Beach Concours D'Elegance. This event has spawned a huge number of other events in the week leading up to it, which is now known simply...

I talk a lot about SUVs these days because it seems everyone is asking me which one they should buy. You may have noticed that's why I've been featuring so many of them on the show, as of late. This got me thinking about what...

Over the weekend Tesla held what they call a "handover event" for the first few Model 3's that were ready for delivery. It was a big moment for the company and for many people who have put down deposits, because they are now one step...

The McLaren F1 is the ultimate road car and next month another one of the 64 examples is heading to the auction block at Pebble Beach. I've written about the F1 before and it continues to be one of the most iconic and most unique...

My latest episode features the 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport, which is a new version of the already popular Rogue model. We'll find out if it lives up to its "Sport" name and what's up with that color?     Photos/Video Courtesy: Phil's Morning Drive Phil’s Morning Drive, a web...

A few days ago Audi released the first images and details of their upcoming redesigned Audi A8 flagship sedan. Much talk has been made about how sedans are going away in favor of SUVs. Well the big three German companies are working to give you...

Last week I was behind the wheel of a 2014 Audi TTS Coupe. When Audi adds the letter "S" it means good things are happening. It's really a car that I think many people overlook in favor of the more expensive Porsche Cayman/Boxster. Watch this...

It's no secret I'm a big fan of the BMW i8. Just take a look at the Phil's Morning Drive Instagram and you'll see plenty of photos of i8s, because I snap a photo every chance I get. BMW recently announced more details on the...

While you were enjoying fireworks displays over the weekend, Porsche was setting off some fireworks of its own by announcing the 911 GT2 RS, the most powerful 911 ever produced. Before we get into the crazy numbers, let me see if I can clear some of...

BMW was one of the first companies to get into the SUV game (or as they call them SAVs, which stands for Sports Activity Vehicle). The latest version of the X3 will be heading to dealers soon as a 2018 model. I've been a big...

I recently returned from a trip to England - in fact, you may have seen my latest episode which gives you a tour of the London Film Museum's "Bond in Motion" exhibit. (Definitely check it out if you are a James Bond fan.) My family and...

So, we know Bruce Wayne has his Lamborghini and James Bond has an Aston Martin… it only makes sense to ask the question, what sort of car does Peter Parker (a.k.a. Spider-Man) drive? A friend of mine, who is probably the world's biggest Spider-Man fan,...

Do you sometimes feel your 911 Turbo S just isn't unique enough? Once again Porsche has answered a question very few of us have asked. The 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series adds one more rung to the hierarchy of 911 models. The Turbo S models...

Back in February I wrote an article about the new Alfa Romeo Stelvio, which is a mid-size performance SUV from a company that continues to add new models to U.S. showrooms. In fact, the Stelvio should hit dealerships later this summer with a starting price...

I was chatting on the phone with a friend of mine who lives in California and as usual, our topic of conversation turned to cars. He mentioned the Joplin supercharger station is now listed as open on the Tesla website. Leave it to my Californian friend to tell me...

I recently spent some time in Southern California and put nearly 1,000 miles on a 2017 Ford Mustang GT Coupe. Did you see my recent video of the Palomar Mountain Loop? That's the Mustang I'm referring to. Spending that much time in a car helps you develop strong...

I must have Audi on the brain because it seems to be the brand I want to talk about the most lately. We just wrapped filming on an upcoming 4-part series that features an Audi S5. In the series we are documenting the process of...

One thing we know about the people at Porsche is they listen to their customers. For example, when the last 911 GT3 was released with only the PDK transmission as an option, many enthusiasts expressed their disappointment. Now don't get me wrong, the PDK is an...

After recently releasing a teaser photo, yesterday was the day Land Rover provided a full unveiling of the new Range Rover Velar. I watched the livestream unveiling from London and immediately started checking for a list of specs and options. I always find it exciting to watch...

  It’s a common headline: Another New SUV is Coming Soon. What's the big deal? Well, another sports car company with a long history of racing success is making an SUV. It will compete with companies like Porsche and Maserati. This new SUV is called the Stelvio...

How many times have you been to a filling station and fumbled for your debit/credit card only to then answer a list of questions about receipts, car washes and zip codes? It might not be the most annoying thing in the world, but luckily we live...

This morning Ferrari announced the replacement for their current front engine V12 model, the F12, will be replaced by the 812 Superfast. Not only is it super fast, that's the official name for it. It might seem kind of cheesy (and obvious), but the name...

Behold, the Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet. Ok, so the G-Wagen is an interesting car in its normal trim level but this version is probably going to win the award for the most insane SUV for 2017. Mercedes and their uber-luxury arm, Maybach, are teaming up to...

These days, the folks at Dodge are going all out with high performance versions of high performance versions of their vehicles. They have now unveiled an SRT8 version of the Durango which will be officially revealed at the Chicago Auto Show later this week. I've...

I've heard the Toyota Camry referred to as many things, such as reliable, economical and even average. A new, surprising word is currently being introduced to this list: sexy. The President of the Toyota Motor Corporation, Akio Toyoda, referred to the 2018 Camry as “sexy” during its unveiling last month...

This morning the folks at Land Rover released an incredible video of their high performance SUV, the Range Rover Sport SVR. If you are into cars at all, you know that the 0-60 time is one of the stats quoted the most for comparing performance. In Europe...
